Saying goodbye for now...

is hard. I've said goodbye to too many of my very good friends in the past couple days; and that'll be even harder in 24 hours when I leave. I guess this is the life of the college student. Summer will bring good things, though. Creative, wonderful things. :)

Here are a couple cards I've made in the last couple days. I need to pack up my scraping stuff today, so I needed one last creative release. Here are the cards:

1. My favorite is for my roommate who is leaving in a couple hours. This was inspired by this sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You (#26)

My version:

Detail shot (love the flowers and the stamping on this!):

Supplies: Cardstock- The Paper Studio (Kraft and White), Archiver's (Blue), and Unknown (light green), Patterned Paper- Making Memories (Dot) and Basic Grey (Green), Stamps- Hero Arts, Ink- Tsukineko, Colored Pencils- Crayola, Brads- Making Memories, Flowers- Prima (paper) and Making Memories (Chipboard), White Paint Pen- ZIG.

2. Now here's an umbrella- inspired card for the current Moxie Fab World challenge. :)

Detail shot- love the dimension!

Supplies: Cardstock- American Crafts (Blue and Grey) and Bazzill (Dotted Swiss White), Patterned Paper- Making Memories, Letter Stickers- Making Memories, Pen- ZIG, Embroidery Floss- DMC, Ribbon- The Paper Studio, Ink- Tsukineko.

3. Here's a card to go with KJ's Stamp Pad Challenge #6. I think it might be missing something, but here it is anyways. :)

It says "I miss you (already)"- it's a little hard to read:

Supplies: Cardstock- Bazzill (Yellow and light Purple) and Unknown (Green and Dark Purple), Embroidery Floss- DMC, Stamp- Hero Arts, Embossing Ink and Powder- Ranger, Letter Stickers- American Crafts, Rub-ons- Doodlebug, Border Punch- Fiskars.

Well, it's time to stop procrastinating and start packing. Only one final left for me, and then I'm out of here and back to the land of cheese, relaxation, and my kitties. :)
